What is JIAMCATT ?Created in June 1987 at the United Nations Office at Geneva, the Joint Inter-Agency Meeting on Computer-Assisted Translation and Terminology, renamed in April 2006 to International Annual Meeting on Computer-Assisted Translation and Terminology (JIAMCATT), provides its partners with a forum for debate, exchange of expertise and cooperation in the fields of computer-assisted terminology and translation, interpretation and documentation retrieval. It works to establish a proprietary terminology and information repository common to all participating organizations.
To this end, JIAMCATT intends to enhance exchanges among languages services of international organizations and national bodies in order to promote the pooling of the partners' terminology resources to make them accessible to all in electronic form.
Today, JIAMCATT membership includes partners from most international organizations, as well as from various national institutions active in the field of terminology and translation.
If you wish to join JIAMCATT as a partner and have access to the common multilingual terminology resources available on the restricted site, you must first request a user ID and a password.
